Description: South African knifemaker David Hoehler specializes in chef's knives. Given that he worked in some of the best kitchens in South Africa for nine years, it is no surprise that he brings a unique understanding the chef's primary tool.
This BBQ Knife was designed by Hoehler to be the perfect barbequing companion. The long slender blade is perfect for slicing large cuts of meat and will be excellent to work with whether slicing over a cutting board or against a fork. The knife has plenty of clearance to be able to be used as a general purpose chef knife as well and will excel when used with push style cuts. The BBQ Knife is the primary knife used for Braai in South Africa and will be a favorite beside your grill.
The blade is hand ground 14C28N stainless steel made by Sandvik in Sweden and heat treated to 59-60 Hrc. 14C28N is tough, chip, resistant, highly corrosive resistant, and maintains good edge retention. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish and a nicely polished spine and choil for comfort.
Two stainless hidden bolt rivets set dyed and stabilized maple burl scales to the full tang. The bolster is formed from polished 304 stainless steel. The handle is contoured to swell at the palm and is extremely comfortable whether holding the knife in a pinch grip or holding the handle farther back. This elegant knife will hold up exceptionally well to the demands of either a home or commercial kitchen.
This is a knife you won't want to put down!
